East Contra Costa Regional Manager
Lakeysha was born and raised in Richmond, CA and attended college at the University of California, Berkeley, where she earned a BA in Sociology. With the assistance from TRIO programs such as the Educational Guidance Center, mentors & family support, Lakeysha was able to build confidence and find light at the end of the tunnel. Being first-generation and low-income was a struggle, but yet she was determined to finish college and become an advocate for her community. While in college, she participated in tutoring programs to help other underserved, first-generation and low-income students within her community. After college, she continued her work in higher education as a DCAC fellow, to working in private institutions, and most recently spending the last 5-years at UC Berkeley Office of Undergraduate Admissions. She is very excited to be back in college access work while shedding light in a different capacity.
